For Immediate Release: The Great American Bracket Race Is Now November 16-18, 2018

Friday, September 7, 2018
MILLINGTON, TN (September 7, 2018) – The Great American $50,000 Bracket Race is now November 16-18, 2018 at Memphis International Raceway (MIR). The Great American Bracket Race was postponed after Tropical Storm Gordon brought strong thunderstorms and flooding to the Gulf States and Mid-South areas.

MIR, along with event owners Gaylon Rolison and Britt Cummings, made the decision to postpone the Great American Bracket Race after seeing the potential impact of Tropical Storm Gordon on racers and their families who live on the Gulf Coast and in the Mid-South areas. Weather forecasts showed Tropical Storm Gordon strengthening in the days leading up to the race. Safety of MIR racers and their families are the number one priority, and with a large percentage of racers traveling from states in the path of the storm, the decision was made to move the Great American Bracket Race to a later date.

The race will now move to a three-day format to accommodate the new dates. A new event schedule for the Great American $50,000 Bracket Race will be released soon.
